Courant Endorses George W. Bush


Hartford Courant, Oct 24, 2004, p. C2

As in many past elections, Americans are closely divided over who should be the next president. It's not a clear-cut case of one candidate being far superior to the other. Yet history is not made by those who stand on the sidelines and wring their hands. The people must choose on Nov. 2, and The Courant recommends George W. Bush over John F. Kerry....

In this age of global terrorism, Americans must have a resolute leader. President Bush is better prepared than his challenger to manage the security needs of the nation. His promise to prevent attacks on the United States by taking the fight to the enemy abroad is one of the main reasons we recommend Mr. Bush for a second term.

The Hartford Courant is owned and operated by the same people that own and operate Joe Lieberman. Why would they endorse someone else?
Word is that they were ordered to endorse Bush by the publisher.
Yes, I remember that was disappointing. Not too surprising though. They pointed out some of Bush's flaws but still bought into the talking points in that article. Very sad.
And don't forget that the brainless Courant ALSO gave their backing and support to Jailbird-Bound Johnny Rowland!!
I've always said that the Courant is good for one thing: its comics section!
